:: MES Quick Start Enables Core MES Functionality Out of the Box

Honeywell has released its Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Quick Start solution for small and medium process manufacturing businesses in Australia and New Zealand. MES Quick Start is an affordable and readily deployable solution that enables plant operators to efficiently manage processes and data across the supply chain in process intensive industries such as mining, minerals and metals, oil and gas, liquefied natural gas and petrochemical refining.

Ready to deploy out of the box and scalable to meet changing business needs, MES Quick Start effectively manages production information including the status of production runs, detailed unit operations, inventory and movement quantities, and conversion factors. The solution promotes plant flexibility through increased decision support in real-time, while reducing the total cost of ownership with pre-tested software and preconfigured reports that are delivered through a defined implementation program. MES Quick Start includes key applications from Honeywell’s robust MES product line including Uniformance® Process Historian Database, Uniformance Process Studio and BizCalc Manager.

“Small and medium manufacturers in these industries tell us they want MES functionality in an affordable solution to quickly respond to shifting business, market and industry needs," said Joe Spirito, advanced solutions manager, Honeywell Process Solutions, Pacific Region. “MES Quick Start meets that need and is a smart solution for those manufacturers who do not currently have a historian or widespread access to process data."

MES Quick Start replaces the reliance on ad hoc spreadsheets, access databases and other personal IT tools, which are often incompatible and inconsistent and can commonly cause loss of essential data. By capturing production plans and schedules, communicating approved activities to operators, and enabling efficient capture and validation of actual production information, collaboration between supply chain planning, production planning and plant operations is improved.

“This solution provides the right information to the right people at the right time in order to support better, faster decisions," said Spirito. “Helping plant personnel improve decision making leads to faster cycle times, reduced cost of compliance and increased efficiency."
